San Antonio Elementary

Summary:

San Antonio Elementary is a public elementary school in San Jose, California, serving 355 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant academic challenges, with consistently low proficiency rates across all subject areas and grade levels, particularly for its Hispanic and English Language Learner student populations.

San Antonio Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom half of California elementary schools, with only 17.67% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy and 14.48% proficient in Mathematics, compared to state averages of 46.66% and 34.62%, respectively. The school's performance is especially low for its Hispanic and English Language Learner students, who rank in the bottom 10-20% of California elementary schools in these subgroups. This achievement gap is concerning and highlights the need for targeted interventions to support the academic growth of these underperforming student populations.

Interestingly, the nearby Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep and Rocketship Los Suenos Academy, which are charter schools within the Rocketship Fuerza Community Prep District and Rocketship Los Suenos Academy District, respectively, generally outperform San Antonio Elementary and other schools in the Alum Rock Union Elementary District. This suggests that the charter school model may be more effective in addressing the educational needs of the local student population. Additionally, San Antonio Elementary has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 1.6% in 2020-2021 to 20.4% in 2022-2023, which may be contributing to the school's low academic performance.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
